    DVI,

    Thank you for doing this. I don't think this has ever been done in the rares community.

    You're very welcome. I feel its important for those of us involved in this community to be able to see where the current trends are, how they effect us, and how we conform or deviate from them.

    Roughly 72% of those who responded will not buy from a known duper, but 50% will buy duped items. So who are the other 22% buying their potentially duped goods from, and does it matter?
